Would you like to change up your Saturday routine and do something new for a change? Well this Saturday is your chance, Sheryl Crow, O.A.R. and Los Lonely Boys will be performing Saturday, Sept. 8 at Kent State University’s Dix Stadium at 6 p.m. Not only can you listen to some good tunes, but tailgate prior to the show and it’s free! The tailgating event is from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the south side of the stadium before the concert. This event will consist of food, wine tasting and corn hole. This is a great opportunity to meet people and try something new. In addition, radio station 98.1 WKKD will be present as well as live talented performers.
If you are a wine drinker and are of the appropriate age you are in luck. There will be four wineries that will be sampling some of their best wines from: Viking Vineyards, Maize Valley, Sarah’s Vineyard Winery and Barrel Run Winery. If wine is not for you, there is much more to do. There will be giveaways, local vendors and plenty of food, so come hungry.
The schedule for the concert kicks off with Los Lonely Boys at 6 p.m., O.A.R. at 7 p.m. and will end with Sheryl Crow at 9 p.m. If transportation is an issue, there is a bus at the front of campus that is driving to the stadium for no cost. As college students we all know that money can be an issue, so student tickets are sold at a discounted price and, the rest of the show is free.
Enjoy this fun Saturday out with friends and relax before the school year gets busier. Have fun Saturday at Dix Stadium!
